Use case

Interactive entertainment with message queues



From live TV quizzes to interactive game shows, experiences rely heavily on efficient communication between the broadcast platform and viewers’ devices. At the heart of this communication lies the technology of message queues, which can be found across different industries and serve various use cases.

In industries from finance to healthcare and logistics, message queues are crucial for managing communication and data flow. They ensure reliable and scalable operations, supporting tasks like real-time financial transactions, patient data management, and logistics tracking. Now, back to interactive entertainment!

Here is a scenario of how LavinMQ is used in a quiz show:

  1. Question broadcasting: The quiz show broadcasts a question to all viewers simultaneously via the broadcast platform.

  2. Viewer participation: Viewers submit their answers in real-time through their devices, such as smartphones or tablets.

  3. Message queue handling: The answers from viewers are sent to a message queue, which manages the incoming data.

  4. Response delivery: The message queue delivers the answers to the broadcast platform in the order they were received, ensuring fairness and accuracy.

  5. Real-time feedback: The broadcast platform processes the answers and provides real-time feedback to viewers, such as correct or incorrect responses.

  6. Score tracking: Viewer scores are updated dynamically based on their responses, with the message queue enabling the exchange of data between the platform and viewers’ devices.

  7. Continued interaction: The process repeats for each question, maintaining the flow of interaction between the broadcast platform and viewers throughout the quiz show.

By efficiently handling large volumes of data and connections, LavinMQ enable TV live quiz shows to accommodate high participant numbers without compromising performance.

Additionally, the system can be scaled up before the show starts and scaled down afterward which effectively manage resources and saves money.
